GQ issues funniest correction evuh after claim Vindman wounded by contraceptive device

Last month the left-wing magazine GQ published a “war was not declared” story. The focus of the piece was Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who at the time was scheduled to testify before a closed-door session of the House Intelligence Committee that he was “troubled” by the import of Donald Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president.

Noting that Republicans have a history of denigrating “military veterans and their families,” GQ conributor Luke Darby took the GOP to task in effect for disparaging comments it had not made about Vindman, who received a Purple Heart after being wounded while on tour in Iraq.

The whole piece seemed like a fool’s errand — criticizing an entire group for something it might say — but it metamorphosed into high comedy today when GQ published the following correction about the original article:

NOTE: This story has been updated. Alexander Vindman received a Purple Heart after being wounded by an IED, or improvised explosive device, not an IUD, or intrauterine device. We regret the error.

As Business Insider whimsically writes:

An IUD, or intrauterine device, is a very effective birth control method that can cause some pain and complications, but rarely kills or maims.

The correction, meanwhile, is making the rounds on social media:
